Dreaming about a vacation this summer? How about a trip to Harry Potter’s World? The National Library of Medicine’s Harry Potter’s World: Renaissance Science, Magic, and Medicine is a digital version of a traveling exhibition created to explore the link between Harry Potter and the history of science using materials from the National Library of Medicine.
The exhibition is divided into six sections and covers potions, monsters, herbology, magical creatures, fantastic beasts and immortality – each an integral part of the Harry Potter series and familiar to Harry Potter fans. Using vintage illustrations, the exhibition takes the viewer back in time – no passport required.
